Martha Stewart, Stacy London (What Not to Wear)  via Mashable's Innovation Index | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? |

"It's always fun when celebrities play in the innovation space, as they're doing with Mashable's 2012 Innovation Index, which just launched."

Why not some fun with Martha & Stacy + Mashable's new Innovation Index process?


Each curator is responsible for a category, and is charged with choosing five nominees for the most-innovative mantle in that category. There are 15 categories in all.

The nominees can be companies, products, technologies or events. Mashable chooses fourteen curators, with readers getting to apply for the 15th slot. The winner of the curator slot will find out on Nov. 26.

Readers then vote on which nominee in each category should be considered the most innovative.
